Quach's Slowplay Puts a Dent in Martin's Stack

• Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

Daniel Quach called from the small blind and Stefan Martin checked his option from the big. The flop came {Q-Clubs}{3-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and Quach checked. Martin fired 8,000 and Quach smooth-called.

Quach again checked when the {8-Hearts} fell on the turn and this time Martin bet just over 20,000. Quach called a second time.

The river came the {J-Diamonds} and Quach checked one more time, prompting a 37,000 bet from Martin. Quach called and Martin looked ready to muck before seeing Quach's cards, which were {A-Spades}{3-Clubs} for a flopped two pair. Martin mucked his hand and Quach's stack grew to just over 300,000.
